"OH IT'S TOO LATE, I GOT HIT BY THE CLOSING DOOR".

Listening to: Bandoliers- Them Crooked Vultures

Its taken me two and a half hours but I have finally sorted out my make-up storage!

Don't over estimate my collection- it is surprisingly small despite the time taken but I developed the awful habit of simply chucking things in draws/ leaving them in handbags so it took a while to bring it all together in a fancy new craft box! To be honest I'm surprised with what I actually have. I have four Black eyeliner pencils that are only used on my brows (why do I need four?) but only one mascara and liquid eyeliner.

I've also spent the morning with a tasty-smelling olive oil conditioning mask on my head, removing unsightly hair (dam PCOS and male pattern hair growth) and plucking my eyebrows into their thinnest ever shape. I will admit at this present moment I hate them, but I know being trimmed this thin will make them a lot easier to style into massive beautiful caterpillars.

On Saturday Chris kindly treated me to a day in London (his exact words were "I want to spend my entire pay check on Jodie" but although he bought me many things I love I'm a simple girl and was simply happy with just the day out).

Jumper: DIY (similar here)
Jeans: Topshop (similar here)
Flatforms: ASOS
Bag: Gift
Necklace: Topman
Velvet hairband and Cat ring: Topshop

 

Chris treated me to a Frozen yogurt and managed to pick the perfect flavour for me! Plus bought me this cute handmade button earrings from a lovely lady in Camden, some awesome glasses, and this super cool Beatles inspired tea infuser so I can drink more lovely loose leaf tea (and has offered to buy me a clear teapot next week!! Very, very spoilt).

I am continually impressed with how well Chris knows me and what I like. I'm not saying that after nearly 3 years he shouldn't but me and Chris don't tend to like the same things (he jokes that whatever I choose he will have the opposite) but his gifts are always spot on.

Knowing I wanted to  visit a lot of places around central London (including the BEST vegan grocery store -Vx near kings Cross where Chris bought me lots of yummy treats including the best cake in history I reluctantly shared and a fantastic cook book) I had to dress sensibly, so a cosy jumper (as I was shivering all the previous night) and jeans where the best option, and as I love my ASOS flatforms they were there too. Flatform really are the best shoes about- they give you all the benefit of an outfit with heels but none of the dangers (although the cobbled streets of Camden Stables did not agree- its lucky I have rubber ankles and Chris to practically carry me).

I was tapped on the practially empty tube a few times to compliment my shoes- so I am not the only flatform fan. My  ASOS flatforms have actually gone down in price to just 15 pounds since I bought them several months ago as has many others, and so now I am lusting over buying both this beautiful blue pair and this floral pair. 



What did everyone else get up to over the weekend?

  3. Sounds like you had a lovely day out :) I love Camden and always find it so inspiring - I miss living there more than anything. It was the best year ever!
    The flatforms and jumper are AMAZING, no wonder you got so many compliments! I have the same problem at the moment though, so many lovely summer outfits planned out that I'm DYING to wear, but it's too cold and miserable to do so, so the same old jumpers and winter jackets come out :( ughhhhh!

    1. my jumpers may be old and worn but i love them- i much prefer winter dressing. and as my wardrobe is a year round thing (i haveno concept of summer clothes) i have no problem.
      it was a great day out but i was happy to get home- i dont think my health would last living in london full time- but i would move to new york in aheart beat.

  6. I absolutely adore your jumper, and it sounds like you had an amazing day in London, I'll have to head to that vegan store you mentioned, as I've never been!
    I've never even tried on a pair of flatforms, but yours are lovely - even if they're not too practical on the streets of Camden! xx

  11. you did such a nice job with that sweater! I LOVE it!
    You shouldn't be jealous about the misfits dress! You should totally buy one yourself!
    I'm 1.73 m tall and bought a XXL. I don't know how tall you are, but I hope you know by knowing my height what size you need yourself!
    I also can measure the space of the armholes for you?
    Let me know if you want to know, I will make a picture and make a very clear drawing for the measures!

    (sorry for my BAD english, I hope you understand everything xD)
